“The transition from our legacy on-premise, software licensing business model to the new cloud-centric, subscription-based Clearvale enterprise social networking (ESN) services continued to make solid progress during Q2,” said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. “The most important milestone has been the introduction of the Clearvale Hybrid Network solution, which provides a unified platform for the enterprise to manage its complex social business ecosystem, empowering new B2B/B2C use cases and complementing ESN’s core B2E usage. We look forward to expanding our global market reach with the complete suite of Clearvale offerings, including our PaasPort program for channel partners and our Social Enterprise Transformation (SET) program for ensuring successful end user adoption. As social business and cloud computing become mainstream, we believe Clearvale is well positioned to dramatically change how people and businesses collaborate and in doing so transform the entire industry.”
